WARA

The Bandstand


Saturday

When speaking of the UK Latin music scene, the name Wara resonates across the board. Originally a nine-piece with a scorching melting pot of identities with backgrounds spanning Cuba, Argentina, Venezuela, Chile, Spain, Germany and the UK, the band formed in 2009, soon finding that they were doing something nobody else had tried: portraying what Latin Americans face when they move to the UK; using their music as a platform to twist stereotypes, bend genres and combine stories in a provocative and intelligent way.

With contagious, in-your-face vocals, inspired keyboard playing and live production, a super tight Latin/UK mix on the rhythm section and their MC quick on the rhymes, Wara’s musical energy is palpable. If there was ever a collective sound that could embody the collision of the Latin and UK music scenes as well as the world at present in all its multi-faceted beauty and madness, this is it.
